Industrial-Organizational Lab, 1140 College of Education

The Industrial-Organizational lab is focused on investigating a variety of areas that can influence employee performance and organizational outcomes. Currently, our Occupational Health and Safety lab is exploring the “Perceptions of Safety on Campus” which delves into how safe employees feel on Valdosta State’s campus and the effect that has on employee performance. The lab is also researching how demographical variables influence an employee’s perception when witnessing workplace violence. If you are interested in joining the I/O lab, please contact Dr. Downing at
